The Revelstoke RCMP received a report from On Star that a vehicle had crashed near Three Valley Gap on Monday, Aug. 1, at around 5:30 a.m.

An officer arrived at the scene about 30 minutes later to find a Chevrolet Silverado had crashed into a tree and entered the lake. The truck was pulled out of the lake with extensive damage.

Police learned the vehicle was reported stolen from Sicamous by the owner. The occupants of the vehicle had fled the scene.

Staff-Sgt. Kurt Grabinsky of the Revelstoke RCMP said the forensics team examined the vehicle and were hoping to uncover evidence that will lead them to the suspects.

“We are working to find out who was responsible,” he said.
